I've made two different cards using this stamp, The first is made with spring type colours, I think the papers were free with a magazine, the stamp is whipper snappers Leah, the flowers are prima and have been glittered with my new sugar coating from doodlebug, which is sooo scrummy and looks too nice to use, the button is also doodlebug.
The second card has been done using the same stamp but has a more autumnal feel to it. the papers are 'Robyn' from Reminisce, I originally bought them to use for men's cards, but saw a card using similar papers on a girly card and so thought I'd give it a go. The flowers are the same prima ones used in the above cards but have been coloured with my ink pads to match the paper, it the first time I've tried this and think it worked quite well, they have also been glittered with sugar coating. The buttons are from my stash, and the dog is another whipper snappers stamp called 'little puppy' I got it from the same ebay seller as the stamp i used in the last post, it was such a good price I couldn't say no to myself!

Ive used my nesties for the circle and scalloped circle, I've also inked the edge of the cards to match the papers used. Leah and the little puppy are on foam pads, as are the circle mats she's on. I've used glossy accents on her shoes, the teddy's nose and the dog's nose.

Ooh they're really sweet! I'm loving that sugar coating ... think I'll have to look into that LOL! I also love your unusual stamps - you use quite few that I don't see elsewhere. I have been influenced by the way you tie narrow ribbon through your buttons (I've only recently started using buttons) and I've had a go today :-)
